Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos dual SIM cell phone test
The Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos is reflected in the test as a decent Android smartphone the lower middle class. With the already somewhat older, but still easily usable Android version 2.3, a 3.5 inch touchscreen and a 832 MHz processor can handle everyday tasks well: mobile browsing, Facebook, email go off very well. In terms of apps from Google Play, fast mobile Internet, multimedia, telephony and games to allow the Ace Duos no real weaknesses, but is significantly behind the current top devices in our top list.
Conveniently, but not a secret
Anyone looking for a high-end dual SIM mobile phone, pay as much as possible the hardware and software would be better for Huawei Ascend G5225, grab the only a few tens more expensive Samsung Galaxy S Duos or Alcatel 997D. The Galaxy Ace Duos is a budget option, but not surprised with unexpected benefits. Those looking dual SIM phone for a solid, high-quality processed beginners, but the usual Samsung quality place before and can not do much wrong.
Almost a twin of the Galaxy Ace
Not coincidentally Samsung has called the phone after the modern classic "Samsung Galaxy Ace", the optically only slightly differs from Ace Duos. Therefore, it may be easiest to talk to the striking differences from the mono version to come. A somewhat different position of the camera, a slightly different shaped back, a different position of the jack - real differences we have in our dual SIM mobile test can not detect.Performance and quality correspond to the additional 2. SIM card total of the level of the normal Ace. So if the popular Galaxy Ace already knows and is now looking very similar smartphone for 2 SIM cards, can be pleased about the recognition effect.
Convenient: The use of 2 SIM cards
The dual SIM features are very handy integrated into the software and have no difficulty in testing. Both SIM cards are also available and allow Active Standby, ie even if you just talked about a SIM card, you can be reached on the other SIM card - unless you disable this feature in the very clear settings.
Even a diversion from SIM1 to SIM2 (or vice versa) is easily chosen by, contacts can be - as usual - assign the SIM card individually and in front of a phone call away a tip on the icon of the desired SIM card to discuss the to call telephone number to call. Given the robust features, compact size, the timeless design and the fairly low price can this phone quite well for different everyday tasks recommend without much to pay. Overall, it ends up in the Favorites list due to its now somewhat aged art but only in the lower middle.
